STL Show & Tell: 100% 3D Printed Aphrodite Shoes By Michele Badia for Download or Purchase #3DxFashion #3DThursday #3DPrinting
3D printed shoes have long been a dream of desktop 3D printing since 2009, but many of the creations to date integrate as “gently” into an outfit as an armful of neon slap bracelets from the 90s. Better examples recently have been combinations of additive techniques and other materials, but seeing these chic heels by Michele Badia renews my faith in the original mission:
Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. When trying to achieve simplicity and elegance in the forms of this creation using 3D printing I was inspired by these thoughts: Beauty and sensuality.
Extraordinary style combined with an extraordinary technology.
These new sandals shoes are from the MyMiniFactory.com 2014 Shoe Collection. Designed by Italian designer Michele Badia, they feature an antique looking bronze finish and also come in a range of funky colours! The adjustable ankle strap and chunky heel design will compliment this season’s hot new fashion. The never before seen NinjaFlex, T-Bar style strap allows the shoes to be 100% 3D Printed….
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
